  1. Before I begin, I have to say something on behalf of all EMTs, who were referred to as "poor BLS buggers...who can't do much else...". EMTs are the cornerstone of EMS, and having served as one myself for half of my 18 year career, am proud to have done so. I've learned more as an EMT than anyone would/could imagine. Being a good EMT has allowed me to become a good EMT-P. And as for "not being able to do much else", well, in my opinion, what else is there to do?
